TEHRAN, Dec. 20 (Press Shia) – AEOI spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi said Iran’s nuclear program has been faring much better since the nuclear deal with 5+1 group of countries went into effect.
Behrouz Kamalvandi, Deputy Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) for International, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, made the remark in a press conference on Tuesday.
He referred to Iran’s joining of the nuclear fusion megaproject known as ITER as one of the opportunities presented to Iran following the signing of the nuclear deal, adding “our participation in ITER is highly significant and will improve our position on the international scene tremendously. ITER will allow the human race to reserve energy for millions of years.”
Kamalvandi stressed that the field of sanctions must be addressed by the Foreign Ministry, but went on to add “the lift of sanctions on our ships, reestablishing connection with the world and the exchange of letters of credit have created a progressive atmosphere for our trade. If we manage our resources correctly, we can join the top ten economies in the world.”
“Within the span of 7 months, we sold 70 tons of heavy water,” he said. “we are set to sell 20 tons annually, and we have a number of potential buyers.”
He went on to add, “even considering nuclear reactors, we are now in possession of some new reactors that are much technically superior to their previous versions.”
Kamalvandi further referred to the many visits made to various countries on expanding nuclear cooperation which led to the signing of a number of good MoUs, saying this positive outcome of the nuclear deal is undeniable.
